You may have heard inklings about the chili cook-off- and they're true: it is happening and we NEED NEED NEED more entries!!!! Right now we have a few locals, and a few non-locals, - but not enough cumulative entries yet to really test the palates of our esteemed judges panel (which includes our very own Chief Robshaw and celebrated The Grateful Table chef!). We NEED at least 15 more entries from our great community - so do NOT be shy, and please contact us right away!! Remember, this is a fun and low-key activity that helps your local veterans. We NEED your entries- so please step up.

Cheverly's American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Unit 108 had the second highest ALA growth in the state of Maryland last year and we want to keep that growth going...so we've started a new tradition of Third Friday Ladies Night at the American Legion Dugout (the downstairs bar).
The Dugout is a members-only bar (and an awesome benefit of joining the Legion family!!), but, on every Friday evening, the Cheverly American Legion graciously invites the community in to the Dugout (come check out their Queen of Hearts game!!), and on the third Friday of each month, the Cheverly Auxiliary specially hosts the ladies of Cheverly at the Dugout from 7:30pm until 10pm to get together and have fun! Members of the Auxiliary will also provide some light snacks this Friday.
Of course men are welcome on third Fridays, too, but we are especially welcoming and inviting the women of Cheverly to come out to the Dugout for some drinks and conversation on those nights.
Special Announcement: Do you have any new or used Wii or Wii-U games that you are willing to pass along to a worthy cause? The Cheverly American Legion Auxiliary Unit 108 is collecting new or used Wii-U and Wii games as part of a statewide Auxiliary project to donate these games to the Maryland Center for Veterans Education and Training (MCVET). Sports and adventure games are preferred; no violent or graphic games, please. If you have games to donate please reply directly or contact the Auxiliary at email@example.com or bring your games to Ladies Night this Friday!
We hope to see you there this Friday!!

So thanks, Cheverly, and Mr. Mayor, for a great afternoon throwing snowballs in the center of town.

And if you see those great folks from Public Works, make sure to thank them for the excellent job they've done with all the snow in the past 48 hours!

The goal? To create 30 scarves and 30 hats by December 2014 for people in need. Our handmade goods will be added to the Christmas bags that the St. Ambrose Ladies of Charity donate to the Prince George's County Hospital each year.
We'll use machine washable fibers, and while we have some materials and needles, we welcome participants to bring their own materials as well.
The kickoff meeting will take place on Wednesday, February 5, 7pm, in the Art Room at St. Ambrose School. We plan to get together once a month (third Wednesday) to stitch and socialize...and, hopefully, produce some gorgeous handmade products to keep special people warm next winter.
For more information, please contact organizers Lorelei Mattics, Terry Montgomery, Marisa Bougoin, or Laura Green. You can also track the Stitching Bees' progress on Ravelry!
